The holidays are a time of year we all like to enjoy with family and friends. It is a special season of joy and giving. This year, more than ever, we are all finding ways to give back.
For 2 years, the Snook Inn has partnered with Youth Haven of Collier County to collect gifts. Youth Haven supplies us with tags with the children’s request. We set a tree in our dining room specifically for Youth Haven and trim it with the tags.
Jinx Ligget, the Executive Direct of Youth Haven responded, “We are truly grateful to Luigi Carvelli and the entire staff at The Snook Inn for hosting a toy drive for Youth Haven’s children and teens for Christmas. Collier County’s most vulnerable citizens—the abused, abandoned, neglected and homeless children and teens—will have a joyous holiday thanks to such terrific community partners!”
Youth Haven provides home, hope and health. It was founded to protect the children and teens that need the care. The holiday spirit is evident at The Snook Inn by the outpouring of gifts we have received from our guests and our staff. We are humbled to be part of this holiday tradition.
For the residents at Youth Haven, these are more than gifts, they are a joy at a time that they need to be joyful, and that is what we should all remember that the holidays are really about.
From the Carvelli Restaurant Group, a heartfelt thank you for your continued support in this wonderful cause.
